On December 16, 2011, deputies from the Moorpark Police Department responded to a robbery call at Dominos Pizza in Moorpark.  Upon arrival, they discovered that a single male Hispanic suspect entered the store wearing gloves and a covering over his face.  The suspect confronted two employees with a knife and demanded money.  The suspect obtained an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene on foot.


Alert citizens in the area were able to assist responding deputies in determining the suspect's initial direction of travel.  Patrol deputies, detectives and a canine conducted a search for the suspect.  The investigation led them to Jose Manuel Cabada.  Cabada was arrested for robbery, and evidence was recovered.


As a result of the robbery, one victim sustained a minor injury that did not require medical attention.  Cabada is currently in custody at the Ventura County Main Jail on $50,000 bail.
